Some big calls for the Red Bull vs McLaren/Mercedes the next couple of weeks.. Max is still Max but Piastri is so much better than Perez and Lando is getting really close to Max (maybe too close this week!).

Drivers looks to be Max and Lando then a strong pack of Piastri, Hamilton, Russell, LeClerc and Sainz.

Captaincy calls probably start to matter as well now that Lando is looking a legit option on a week to week basis.

North Melb.
Can anybody enlighten me on how Ocon scored 38 points? Should only be 10 points by my calc as shown below. Similarly Alpine awarded 55 but only 26 by my calcs.

Grid 10th - 4 points
Race 12th - 6 points
No overtaking points

They've given him 32 overtaking points. Weirdly didn't get the 4 points for Qualifying, so they've clearly messed up his starting position somehow.

Last second trades but brought in Piastri for Hamilton and a Red Bull for a Mercedes. Have enough cash at this point to get any cars/drivers so not worrying about BE at this point.

Also going to throw the Lando C spanner out there and see if it sticks.

Basically a punt to see if I can get some differentiation out there. Has failed every time I've done it this season but got to keep trying :LOL:

Look good so far!

I went the opposite way, single trade of Hamilton to Piastri. Toyed with a Mercedes to Red Bull but glad I didn't (although some serious overtaking points on offer for Perez tonight)

Haha you've totally read it the wrong way, I did exactly what you contemplated with Piastri and Red Bull in for Hamilton and a Mercedes, so not a good start :LOL:

Norris over Verstappen a little win, I wasn't ever going Russell captain so can't complain there.

Now that was more exciting!
Shame norris couldn't hold on and piastri got screwed a bit though
I wonder if McLaren had made some different calls how things may have panned out.
Double stacking Piastri instead of keeping him out for an extra lap.
Putting new mediums on Lando instead of the softs.
